The cover picture of our special issue is an artist's vision of photon management in thin film triple solar cells for next generation ultra-high efficiency photovoltaics. Light is spectrally splitted by intermediate reflectors adopted to the absorption edge of the three individual thin film absorbers.

In the article by Andreas Bielawny et al. on p. 2796 this concept is exploited for tandem thin film solar cells using three-dimensional photonic crystals.(© 2008 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
